As the only all-girls full boarding school in the North of England, 75% of girls at Queen Margaret’s are full boarders and all day girls have a bed. The full boarding nature encourages busy weekends with a myriad of opportunities to look forward to at the end of each week. The School provides an immense variety of activities, clubs and societies and other enrichment opportunities while never sacrificing the needs of the individual girl.
Weekends at Queen Margaret’s involve a vast array of activities. As well as sports fixtures, rehearsals and Sunday Chapel, days out include everything from high energy trips to the trampoline park, climbing wall and go karting, to more relaxed visits to museums and stately homes, the cinema, shopping and craft making. Activities are also arranged in School including House pizza nights, pampering evenings and fashion shows.
Sixth Formers can also enjoy the Cardio Suite and Cellars, the recently refurbished social hub. By day it is a place to sit, chat, read and drink a coffee and at night the flat screens and surround sound transform the venue into a place for parties, dances and impromptu gigs.
Queen Margaret’s also offers support to girls who wish to pursue their passions and has supported girls in many different disciplines from Politics to Pentathlon to Eventing where two girls have achieved the title of U18 National Champion.
The first and last full weekend of each Half Term is a QM Community Weekend. View the video below to see the Whole School Activity Day, International Tea Party and Scottish Themed Dinner during the first Community Weekend of the Autumn Term.
